April 6 (Bloomberg) --" New natural-gas drilling technologies may have doubled U.S. reserves of the fuel, Energy Secretary Steven Chu said today.

This is further confirmation that the Eagle Ford shale formation in our neighborhood is substantially adding to the proven reserves. With the new fracing technology that has recently been developed we are well on our way to bridge the energy gap to renewable sources. EIA estimates are that we have a 100 year supply of natural gas. The Crossroads area has been dealt a very lucky hand. With natural gas we will be able to cut carbon emissions by converting coal to gas electrical generation and use natural gas for transportation. It's all good.
